Abstract

Compared the proportion of self-references made by authors published in journals rated as high prestige and low prestige in a prior study by K. C. Mace and H. D. Warner (1973). The high prestige journal showed significantly more self-referencing, possibly supporting the contention that this practice is based on a need for professional self-aggrandizement. Alternate interpretations of the result are proposed. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
